Architecture at Microsoft

We wouldn’t be technological leaders if we didn’t invest in imagining new solutions. Yet our architects are far more than innovative thinkers. They also have their feet on the ground, developing end-to-end solutions that deliver tangible benefits for some of the largest global organizations. Working alongside clients during the pre-sales, discovery and design phases, you’ll combine broad technology and architectural process skills to envisage the infrastructure or software development solution they need.

Leading internal and external delivery teams, you’ll pitch, develop and realize uniquely relevant solutions and incredible business value for some of the world’s highest profile organizations.

It’s your chance to:
Develop new solutions that impact on the future of Microsoft platforms
Use your expertise and vision to improve a customer’s bottom line
Enable new markets, different business models and rich user experiences
Expand your integration skills across multiple technologies in complex environments
Combine abstract thinking and architectural skills to shape the most innovative technology on the horizon

Skills and qualifications:
Practical experience of delivering complex architecture projects
Depth of IT knowledge, including pre-sales support, technical consulting, solution design and project planning
Experience of Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7 and Systems Center products
Knowledge of client security and identity management (Forefront), Microsoft Exchange, Lync Server, Remote Desktop Services and VDI
Design experience in Hyper-V and data centre virtualization, storage and networking
Highly influential and able to set the direction of architecture projects
Degree or equivalent in Computer Science, Engineering or similar
Ability to apply industry-leading knowledge in creating architecture and deploying technology to solve business issues
